In case you haven’t noticed, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is kind of like Black Friday for bloggers. We wait for this for a year, strategically plan for certain deals, and share our hauls. In case you don’t understand how the sale works- I’m going to defer you to Ashlee, who did an amazing post on everything you need to know about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Last year, I was pretty unimpressed, honestly. This year, however, I found a bunch of things I love. I don’t really need anything per say, so I didn’t have a strategy. I went page by page to check out literally everything the sale has to offer. True to Caroline form, I love the relaxed, the distressed, and the cold-shouldered. Threw in a couple funky pieces to keep my readers on their toes. Oh hey rose gold hat. How you doin’?

Remember that the items included in this sale tend to go fast, so if you see something you love, grab it. Also of note- my picks are in price order and everything you see here is under $150!

There’s nothing quite like a beach vacation to look forward to. But let’s face it; the enjoyment starts long before you disembark the plane. Shopping for new wardrobe items adds a sense of excitement to your pre-vacation plan, and they pay an essential role in the overall fun.

There are several fashion items that must be packed for your time by the sun, sea, and sand. Here are five that you simply must not ignore.

Cupshe Court And Spark Fresh Leaves Bikini Set

Bikinis:

In truth, you won’t only be wearing bikinis on holiday. However, this is your chance to catch some rays, and the right beach attire will help you strut around in style. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with working hard to get the beach bod before you go. Nonetheless, the outfits are integral to the look.

If you aren’t overly confident, then one piece options can provide a great alternative. Meanwhile, sarongs also provide coverage while offering an easy way to enjoy the sun when it suits you. As for styles, small chests should try to look for padding or ruffled designs that help the illusion. Big chests are better suited to those with supportive under wiring.

Sunglasses:

You don’t necessarily need to spend huge amounts of cash on a big brand for sunglasses. The key is to find a pair that suits your face. You can gain help with this task at https://lenscrafters.com/findyourlook. Just make sure you’re getting UV protection as well as style!

Custom Floppy Beach Hat

Hat:

First and foremost, covering your head is as important as hydration in the fight against heat stroke. However, there is no doubt that a great looking hat can aid your sense of style also.

Floppy sun hats are on trend every summer, as long as they are worn with the right outfit. Meanwhile, you should probably pack a cap of some ilk for when you hit the beach volleyball court or jet skis.

Leather sandals

Footwear:

Finding the balance between style and comfort is never easy when looking for holiday footwear. In truth, though, the task is a little easier when it’s a beach holiday. After all, your walking activities are unlikely to include challenging treks.

A light, versatile, and comfortable shoe will do just the trick. You can find some great options at https://bestyogablog.com/sanuk-shoes/. Just remember that you may need the same pair to look great on the beach and in a restaurant, and you’ll be sure to choose wisely.

Monogrammed Beach Bag

Bags:

Whether heading to the beach or the pool, you will need to take various items with you. Therefore, a good sized bag is essential. However, you could potentially leave it unattended at times, so opting for a standout design is key. Likewise, you should ensure that it boasts a decent zip.

Let’s face it; the bag is likely to carry sun lotions, smartphones, water, and a book or Kindle. It is going to play a huge role in your daily activities. Make sure that it supports your style too, and happiness in the sun awaits.

When summer is on the way, it’s the perfect time to gather your girlfriends and go on a shopping spree. After all, the weather is hotting up and trips to the beach or weekends away in the sun are likely to be on the cards, and you’ll want to ensure that you have lots of cute outfits to see you through the season.

Lilly Inspired Preppy Monogram Tunic

A lot of ladies worry about their summer wardrobes, not really sure what they should be buying to look and feel their best when the weather is warmer, but it’s actually pretty easy to get it right, providing you know the following:

Buy Larger Shoes

It might sound odd, but one thing that women who are used to hot weather can all agree on is that you need to buy shoes that are at least half a size bigger than you would usually wear if you plan to wear them a lot in the summer. This is important because the summer heat causes feet to swell, and if your shoes are a perfect fit, there’ll be no room to accommodate this, causing nasty blisters and sores when you should be enjoying yourself.

Stick to Natural Fabrics

If you want to avoid looking and feeling like a hot, sweaty mess, then you really need to stick to natural fabrics like cotton and linen, avoiding poly-blends and synthetic materials, when shopping for your summer wardrobe. I know synthetic fast-fashion items are more affordable, but for the most part, they just aren’t breathable, and with a few exceptions, like Anthony’s chic resort dresses and sundresses, they will make you feel more uncomfortable at the height of summer’s heat. So, you may have to just suck it up and buy fewer pieces of higher-quality if you want to feel fresh and comfy and look fabulous this summer season.

Loosen Up

Another way to stay cool and keep yourself from getting too hot and sweaty is to choose looser garments. If you’re wearing a dress that is long and flowing and which keeps most of the material off your body, you’re obviously going to sweat less than you would if you had lots of fabric clinging to your body. So, keep those form-fitting dresses for the evening when it’s a bit cooler and go for loose, natural clothing during the day.

Customizable sunhats

Always Have a Hat and Scarf on Hand

When it comes to accessories, in the summer less is more because the more jewellery and clothing embellishments you have close to your skin, the hotter you will get, but you should always make an effort to carry a cute wide-brimmed hat and light chiffon scarf around with you. That way, when it gets too hot, you can out on the hat, or if you feel like you need more coverage, you can drape a scarf over your shoulders, and you will look even more fantastic.

Choose Light Colors

Summer is the perfect season to wear whites and pastel colors. Not only do they fit the season perfectly, but they also reflect the heat rather than absorbing it, helping you to feel cooler and fresher.

What are your top tips for staying cool and looking great in the summer?

Choosing an outfit is always a tough decision that takes a lot of time. But, choosing a summer outfit is even harder as there are so many different things you can wear! Today, I’ve got six ideas that you can use to help your summer outfits stand out from the crowd:

Custom Personalized Sun hat

Put On A Summer Hat

Back when we were little, a summer hat was something your mom made you wear to keep you safe from the sun. Nowadays, they’re very trendy and can give your outfit a serious boost. As mentioned in this previous article thecarolove.com/simple-ways-to-up-your-style-game/, you need to get some accessories if you want to up your style game. A hat is the perfect place to start, and there are so many different varieties that are gorgeous and will liven up your summer style.

Decorated Pink Heart sunglasses

Rock Those Sunglasses

Sunglasses are a staple in any summer outfit. They’re a fantastic accessory and can take your outfit from an 8 to a 10 real quick. There are, of course, plenty of  styles out there, but which one is great for summer? For me, some big aviator shades are perfect if you want to stand out in style and get loads of heads turning.

Long Rainbow Tassel Earrings

Get colorful

Wearing bright and vibrant colors is always a great way to stand out, and it fits in with summer fashion trends too. As you can see on sites like paisleygraceboutique.com, there are loads of colorful and floral tops that are in fashion right now and would be good for summer. The great thing is, it doesn’t matter what type of tops you like wearing, you’ll always find a colorful variation that will help you stand out.

Lilly Pulitzer Lindamarie Silk Caftan

Wear A Dress

The great thing about summer is that it makes certain outfits far more appropriate and acceptable than they would be in other months. For example, go out for lunch in a dress during the winter, and people look at you funny. But, don a nice colorful dress in the summer, and you’ll stand out for all the right reasons. Don’t be afraid to show off your legs either, flaunt the gifts you’ve got, it’s summer baby!

CACTUS NECKLACE

Get Something Shiny Around Your Neck

I’m a big fan of necklaces and think they make the perfect summer accessory. Especially if you wear something shiny as it will glisten and sparkle in the sunlight. A subtle diamond necklace is perfect, you really don’t need to go overboard here. Sometimes, less is more!

Katy Perry Geli Novelty Beach Sandals

Slay In Sandals

Throughout the year we’re pretty much confined to wearing standard shoes or trainers whenever we want to go anywhere. However, if you want to give your outfit a boost this summer, why not wear some sandals? They’re great for adding something extra to your look and making the whole get-up feel more summery and sweet.

Use these ideas and apply them to different outfits so that you stand out in style this summer. You can combine every idea to create the perfect summer outfit, or just pick a couple and use them to add something extra to your existing outfit.

I don’t know about other engaged/ married ladies, but when Kendall popped the question, I wanted to tell the world. And I did. We got lucky in that our proposal was actually taped by a WTK band member/ YouTuber, so it’s immortalized on the ‘tube FOR-EV-ER (and it’s been viewed over 46k times!) besides being on my blog. I could talk wedding all day long, and I’ve actually apologized to my friends and family for being super lame insanely excited  about my engagement and they’ve all told me the same thing: it’s my time. And you know what? After all the weddings I’ve attended and been init is.

While I didn’t even consider flashing my ring all over social media the minute I got engaged, it is an absolutely stunning symbol of my my and Kendall’s new life together. He picked it just for me and it’s basically a combo of every ring I’ve ever loved. I also, pretty much immediately, picked up the Bride trucker hat I wore to the Barbie brunch last weekend. I just kind of want to shout it from the rooftops that I’m taken- by the most amazing guy on the planet. I am truly lucky that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Incidentally, today is my birthday! And I couldn’t ask for a better gift than all the love I’ve received this year from both him and everyone else in my life. Thank you to everyone who has made 27 my best year. 28 will only be better because I get to marry the love of my life!
